Interior - 2018 Ford Mustang near Dubuque

In decades past, this model was rather sparsely appointed on the interior, with cloth upholstery, rather uncomfortable front seats, and lots of sharp metal trim surfaces. Things have certainly changed. Good quality materials abound, and the upholstery is plush. The retro-style front dual-cowl dashboard of course remains, and some of the gauges and dials retain their familiar appearance. However, the new digital readouts blend in nicely, and the available screen display is easy to read and navigate. The rear seating area is a bit cramped, but this isn't a family transport to begin with. The front seats are quite spacious, and there's plenty of lateral movement for the driver and front passenger. Standard features on the base EcoBoost trim include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, air conditioning, a center screen display, Bluetooth, and a six-speaker sound system. The uplevel EcoBoost Premium adds on dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a power driver's seat, smartphone app integration, a larger screen display, and a nine-speaker sound system. The uplevel trims also feature the Sync 3 infotainment system. Plenty of stand-alone options are available including a digital gauge cluster, a heated steering wheel, navigation, and Recaro front sport seats.
